Babatunde Raji Fashola, the Nigerian Minister of Works and Housing, has claimed that the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration, has done more infrastructural projects than the United States (US) government. ayokinews.com reports
Fashola stated this on Thursday while speaking at the “APC dialogue series”, held in Kano state.
“I can assure you that the present APC administration of President Buhari has achieved what even the US government is trying to do in terms of infrastructure”, Fashola said.
“As at December 2021, we have completed 941 kilometers of roads across all states and geopolitical zones.”
“In Kano state here for instance, there are 21 road projects either in, around or in the neighbouring communities.”
“Before APC administration, when last do you remember Federal Government completing 50 kilometer road in any part of the country?”
“So, this is the positive change we promised Nigerians in 2015 and it is already happening. They say we are the same with them, but we are not. They stole money and took it abroad, but we are taking this money back and investing it in the area of infrastructure,” Fashola added.
